  • Generally not my style, but a very interesting and important collection that is well displayed. The Roy Liechtenstein collection (more my style) is superb. Parking is easy and probably subsidizes the....  more »
  • The building is stunning, the collection is unbelievable (how can they afford so many iconic works?) and the visit is entirely free. The museum isn't too large, but the quality is immense and I don't....  more »
  • WOW! When The Broad first opened, it was impossible to get tickets. we tried and tried and it just didn't work out... so after a while... we just forgot about it. Years went by... then the other...  more »
  • very suggestive place, characterized by futuristic and very particular architectures, almost unique. the structure hosts important contemporary exhibitions and the staff is very kind and qualified. ideal to spend at least 2 hours to appreciate evolved paintings, technologies and sculptures. parking spaces everywhere for those who want to travel by public transport. in the area you can also find excellent dining options and good Italian cuisine, with Italian espresso, and it's not a small thing. recommended!
  • The architecture alone is worth the visit here. What an amazing building, inside and out. The place is bathed in natural light, making it such a pleasure to view the incredible art collection. The art is so very cool, and curated so well. The store on the ground floor is worth a stop, and the books sold are hard not to buy after being inspired by the art collection. Definitely park under the building as it is the most convenient. And make sure to reserve free tickets for entry as data ahead as you can.
  • The Broad was a great experience. It was my first time there. The Aesthetics are incredible. The building design, the courtyard with restaurant. All nice. The art collection was amazing and i really enjoyed the exhibit Black Power art 1963-83. Great collection and very informative and powerful visuals. I only briefly was able to see the artwork on the 3rd floor but i will definitely return soon to view. I hear Jazz nights are great so that will be my next visit.
  • My first visit to The Broad assured that I will be returning. I went for the The SOUL of a NATION presentation that was excellent. But I got so much more The light room display made me feel like I had already become a eternal star in a galaxy of stars. The people who are drawn to the BROAD are as artistic in their expressions as the art. The docents at the Broad are so cutting edge trendy that they become live works of art worth viewing. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the Broad. The parking at the Broad ended up costing $25
  • Really cool, you have to reserve tickets online some time in advance, but if you don't, you can also queue to be let in anyway. It's such a beautiful buildings with really cool architecture inside, but it is quite small. Definitely fun for an hour or so, but it's not a gallery you'd spent a day at, especially because lots of the art is minimalist or weird and not something you can spend forever poring over (unless you adore modern art). It's definitely worth a visit in any case! I'd reserve tickets because I don't think it'd be worth standing in line for an hour or so to go in.
